Look What Just Arrived! (#12)

Carrie Pictures 2013 062Yes, I bought more books!  And I received some for my birthday, which was on Sunday.  So what are some of the new books I have?

  • Thirst No.3 by Christopher Pike
  • Emperor of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
  • Darklight by Lesley Livingston
  • Wake by Amanda Hocking
  • Othello by William Shakespeare
  • Hidden by Sophie Jordan

The book I was most excited about out of all six of these was the one I got for my birthday: Emperor of Thorns.  I actually just finished it today and there’ll be a review up soon.  I don’t want to spoil anything, but Jorg is up to his usual tricks in the last book in the trilogy.  Othello was a book I ordered from Amazon because I won a $20 gift card in one of The Masquerade Crew’s many contests.  I used to hate Shakespeare but I find that when I read it on my own without analyzing every single line I quite enjoy it.  Also: Iago is an awesome villain.

The other books I received were either second or third books in series, but Wake by Amanda Hocking is a completely new book to me.  I’d seen it on bookstore shelves previously but was waiting to find a paperback version to give it a try.  I’ve read it already and let’s just say I have mixed feelings about it.

Well, that’s what I’ve been reading lately.  So what have you been reading?  Do you see anything you like here?

    Happy birthday! (Mine was Thursday.) I’m currently retreading The Time Traveler’s Wife (Niffenegger) because I heard there’s a sequel in the works.
